DTV — Date-Time Issue - Examples Related to Timezones

  • Key: DTV-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16679
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Andrew Watson)
  • Summary:

    (This comment came from the Architecture Board's review of the final submission.)

    The later sections of the specification (13.5.4 & 16.5) contain very detailed discussion of Time Zones and Daylight Saving Time. However, some of the earlier sections contain informal comments that don't always take this into account. For instance, on page 45 (clause 7.1.2) it says "Example: The time interval identified by 2010 is before the time interval identified by 2011." This glosses over the fact that 2010 and 2011 overlap by 24 hours, because 1 Jan 2011 was almost over in New Zealand before 1 Jan 2011 started in Hawaii. It might be worth quickly scanning all the examples, and perhaps amending language in some to take account of Time Zones.
